You may want to take a look at the ViP612 L6.00 Software Experiences/Bugs Discussion thread which has posts like this one:

I just installed a new 612 and have experienced the OTA dropouts as well. I am having periodic lockups, BSODs, and slow-no response to remote commands. After replacing the HDMI cable and rebooting, check switch, and yet another front panel reset, things seem a little better tonight.

I have a 622 on my primary TV and it has been rock solid lately. 612 is on a new Samsung DLP 1080p in the Family room. OTA signal levels are definitely lower on the 612. Hopefully just growing pains. The 622 had similar problems when I first hooked it up, but it has outgrown all the early glitches. Hopefully, the next SW upgrade will be more stable.
My two week old 612 has had no serious problems though playback does stall at times and the control is a bit kludgy compared to my 722. But there appears to be folks happy with their 612's so you may want a replacement.
